About the author

 USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller is a former attorney who traded the practice of law for the art of telling stories.

As a lawyer, she clerked for a federal judge; practiced in the offices of major international law firms; and ran a two-person law firm with her lawyer husband. Now, powered by coffee, she writes crime fiction and homeschools her three children. When she's not writing, and sometimes when she is, she travels around the country in an RV with her husband, kids, and cat. 

She is the author of more than two dozen bestselling legal thrillers, suspense thrillers, romantic comedic mysteries, and forensic thrillers. All her work shares two common threads: pulse-pounding, tightly plotted action and smart, unlikely heroines and heroes.

 Join Aroostine Higgins as she risks everything in the pursuit of justice in this thriller bundle from USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller. This bundle features the first three novels in the smart, gripping Aroostine Higgins series.

Critical Vulnerability (Book 1):


Aroostine’s gearing up to prosecute a major bribery trial … one that could make or break her career in the Department of Justice’s elite Criminal Division. But everything’s going wrong.


By the time Aroostine realizes her string of bad luck is anything but random, the stakes are far higher than the outcome of a high-profile court case. The life of the only man she’s ever loved hangs in the balance.


Now, it’s personal.

 

Chilling Effect (Book 2):


Rumors of money skimming, murder, and stolen military weapons swirl around a Central Oregon reservation.

Federal prosecutor Aroostine Higgins is sent to investigate in the hopes that her Native American roots will help her win trust in a community wary of outsiders.

She arrives to find her would-be informant executed in his home. As she digs deeper into the facts surrounding the murder, she butts heads with tribal authorities bent on solving the crime and doling out punishment on their own terms.

She and her husband, Joe, narrowly escape a deadly ambush on the reservation. They go off the grid and must rely on her tracking and survival skills to uncover the dirty secrets someone's trying desperately to bury.

Aroostine has no idea who to trust ... and who wants to kill her.

 

Calculated Risk (Book 3):


Former prosecutor Aroostine Higgins takes on her first assignment for the Office of Tribal Affairs. 


A priceless antique that may be a counterfeit. A missing socialite. A desecrated corpse. 

For a sleepy Southern Louisiana town, Belle Rue is home to an awful lot of secrets ... and desperate people who will do anything to keep those secrets. 

Aroostine comes to Belle Rue with a simple mission: track down the weaver a one-of-a-kind example of Native American basketry. But the when her trail collides with a local homicide investigation she and her husband, Joe, find themselves smack in the middle of two scandals: one that spans generations; one that dominates the headlines. 

As Aroostine teases out the connections that weave the two tragedies together, her actions put her in a killer's sights.

Tommy Orange’s “groundbreaking, extraordinary” (The New York Times) There There is the “brilliant, propulsive” (People Magazine) story of twelve unforgettable characters, Urban Indians living in Oakland, California, who converge and collide on one fateful day. It’s “the year’s most galvanizing debut novel” (Entertainment Weekly).
 
As we learn the reasons that each person is attending the Big Oakland Powwow—some generous, some fearful, some joyful, some violent—momentum builds toward a shocking yet inevitable conclusion that changes everything. Jacquie Red Feather is newly sober and trying to make it back to the family she left behind in shame. Dene Oxendene is pulling his life back together after his uncle’s death and has come to work at the powwow to honor his uncle’s memory. Opal Viola Victoria Bear Shield has come to watch her nephew Orvil, who has taught himself traditional Indian dance through YouTube videos and will to perform in public for the very first time.

There There is a wondrous and shattering portrait of an America few of us have ever seen. It’s “masterful . . . white-hot . . . devastating” (The Washington Post) at the same time as it is fierce, funny, suspenseful, thoroughly modern, and impossible to put down. Here is a voice we have never heard—a voice full of poetry and rage, exploding onto the page with urgency and force. Tommy Orange has written a stunning novel that grapples with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and profound spirituality, and with a plague of addiction, abuse, and suicide. This is the book that everyone is talking about right now, and it’s destined to be a classic.
